‘Rogue River’ Duo Reteam For Indie ‘Children of Sorrow’; First Trailer!

2-Children-of-Sorrow

Bloody Disgusting is excited to share with you the teaser premiere for Children of Sorrow, from Rogue River director Jourdan McClure and writer Ryan Finnerty.

In the film, “A young woman embeds herself in a cult looking for answers to her sisters disappearance, only to find a dark secret within the cult and an even darker secret within herself.

COS is pretty unlike anything I thought I would do. It’s really my attempt at a P.O.V Mocku-horror film with roots in the slice of life genre. The story is told through the lenses of diegetic devices. This is not found footage but utilizes elements of the FF aesthetic along with the documentary presentation to make something unnerving and interesting.

The film stars Bill Oberst Jr (Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies) as self help guru Simon Leach, and Hannah Levien.

    Thank you for the trailer post. I’m curious to know what Bloody Disgusting readers think of Children of Sorrow director Jourdan McClure’s assertion that “disturbing is the new gore.” That statement was sort of the rule of thumb he gave all of us during the shoot for this film.

      I suppose it could mean a few things that may pertain to the modern horror industry (depending on the context of which he said it). One interpretation is that, for many people, gore is a necessity for their horror palate. Finding ways to couple that gore (be it gratuitous or appropriate to the story line) with a disturbing plot may be the recipe many seek after.

      Another interpretation could be that a disturbing plot may displace the need for gratuitous gore as it stands on its own. In many cases, disturbing films can often leave out the implied gore (e.g. Funny Games).

      Or I could be totally wrong and he meant something else. Ha!
